The free seasonal flu spray is offered to all children and young people in school.
Even if your child received this last year it is recommended, they have it again this year or they won’t be protected. With COVID-19 in circulation it is more important than ever to reduce the number of those becoming ill with flu this winter to help protect them and the NHS.
You must complete one online consent form for each of your children.
It is important every child has a completed form which states if you would like them to receive the flu vaccination spray or not.
The online consent form can be found through this link or the QR code on the information sheet below:
Visit date: 29th November
School code: NG144320
Children and young people are given the vaccine as a nasal spray. However, the nasal spray has porcine gelatine (pork) content. You can opt for your child to have their vaccination as an injection rather than a nasal spray. The flu injection does not contain porcine gelatine (pork).
